IN the past couple of weeks, the Coega Development Corporation (CDC) has been made aware of social media messages that have been circulating about construction jobs that are allegedly sold by persons in- or outside the employ of the CDC, purporting to be representing the CDC.The CDC views these allegations in a serious light and would like to categorically distance itself from them. “Furthermore, the CDC would like to reiterate that under no circumstances will job seekers be asked for money in the pre-recruitment and post-recruitment processes. Since one of our four values is integrity, we ensure that in all our processes, we adhere and promote good corporate governance, honesty and transparent practices,” the CDC said. “Therefore, we have zero tolerance for fraud and corruption. The CDC would like to proactively encourage all its employees and broader stakeholders to report any such activities.” The Coega Development Corporation urges those with information about the matter to contact the CDC’s anonymous tip-off line on 080 000 7035 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
